We often hear how important it is to quantify the return on investment (ROI) of our library, information center, or research services. But how do we start to measure our value beyond just visitor count or number of research questions answered? SLA members tackled these questions in a recent #SLATalk ( Due to the overwhelming interest this topic generated, SLA members participating in the Twitter Talk have put together an exciting and informative webinar for the benefit of all SLA members!

In this session our speakers will explore

      • Why it is important to collect metrics
      • Understanding your organizational audience
      • Tools and approaches to collecting metrics
      • Obstacles to implementing metrics
      • Proving your value through metrics
      • …and more!
